KOPER (United Press Staff Correspondent) LAKE SUCCESS, N. Y.. Deo. 28. —Big Five representatives began private conferences today in an effort to patch up differences threatening to wreck plans for international control of atomic power. Private negotiations among k?y delegations started after the United Nations Atomic Energy Commission split almost evenly on one vital issue. The disputed point w;is whether thc Big Five should be allowed to use thc veto power to block punishment of a country making bombs illegally. The United States said it would not join In a treaty to outlaw atomic weapons and pool atomic information unless the treaty provided , automatic punishment for violators. China and four smaller counU'ire backed the U. S. stand. .Their view collided with thc wishes of two other Big Five powers- Russia and France. They insisted that under Ihe UN charter, punishment directed by the Security Council must be subject to the Big Five veto. Poland, Great Britain, Canada and the Netherlands sympathized with this view to varying degrees. Each side argued its case with equal vigor. Until all the Big Five powers and practically nil 'jf the smaller nations agree, there can be no hope for international regulation of atomic activities. The crisis may come Mohdn'y when the Atomic Commission planned a final vote. Delegates hoped, however, that week-«nd conferences could help reconcile the sharp differences. While the bitter split over the veto frightened maiiy UN delesratis, they were cheered by the fact that members of the Atomic Commission agreed on every of her detail of the American atomic energy program sponsored by Bernard Baruch. Commission members during eight hours of closed meetings tentatively approved provisions for international inspectipn'of atomic facilities, and the 'eventual, junking of ajl existing atomic weapons. iThty acccptediipagcwjffter pa<;e of the Baruch proposals,.. only to .stumble over four words—whether treaty violators should be protected from punishment "by veto or otherwise." Tlie white-haired Baruch said that unless those words stayed In, he could not ask the U. S. Senate to approve an atomic treaty. This would mean that the U. ^|B. wo.uld keep its atomic secrets. Barvtch emphasized the tate-it- or-!eave-H nature of his proposal by predicting that the American people would withdraw their suji- ix>rt of UN if the veto pow^r remained. "Only those nations which may intend to violate the treaty would want tlie protection of thc veto," Baruch said. Soviet Delegate Andrei Gromyko argued last week that the UN charter provides for a veto over Security Council action, and that the vsto could be eliminated only through charter revision. Since then, Soviet spokesmen have refused to discuss merits 6f thc Baruch proposals. Four Passengers Die, 14 Injured In Flaming Bus WORLAND, Wyo,, Dec. 28—(UP) —A jammed safety door was/ believed to_have caused the flaming deaths of four passengers aboard a Wyomtng-to-Montana bus which collided head-on with a truck on a snow-packed bridge near here late yesterday. At least H others suffered injuries, ana the bus driver remained In a critical condition today. Authorities said the charred condition of the bodies made positive Identification difficult. Flaming gasoline quickly enveloped both vehicles, investigators said, and the screaming bus passengers fought to get through windows when they could not open the safety door.

Temperatures throughout the Middle Western states, however, today bounced back from Friday's record heights and were expected lo drop to zero in some sections by tomorrow morning as Uie northein portion of the nation found itself in the grip of a year-end cold wave.

Many Stores Arrange Clearance Sales After Holiday Rush Ends By United Press The nation's shoppers, lor Ihe first time, since 1941, had a field day across the country's bargain counters today as stores slashed prices, and held almost-forgotten clearance sales of suits, dresses, shoes, furs, household, goods and some roods. The reductions ranged from 33 o 50 per cent, and in some eases tems were going for cost. Cuts In food prices were limited i butter, eggs, a few meats and certain tyi>cs of canned citrus lulces. in all cases, tlie price drops could Ijc attributed to cither: 1. Overbuying by stores which ordered three dozen dresses, for instance, in the nope thc manufnc- .urer would i c t them have at least one dozen for the Christmas Irade. 2.

(UP)^The administration wns caught in a cross-fire of criticism and counter-charges today In the torrid controversy over tho sugar problem. ' Secretary of 'Agriculture Clinton p. Anderson touched it off by accusing New York brokers of plotting to scuttle sugar controls. At the same time, lie Pledged housewives an all-out clfotl to assure them sugar at reasonable prices. The reaction from sugar brokers, nnd Republican congressmen as well, was immediate and heated. William H. nurns, head of the National Brokers Association, said in New York (hut Anderson's charges were "fantastic." He said the association did not advocate Immediate removal ot sugar controls because the result would be "chaotic." On C->pltol Hill, Sen. Hugh Butler, R., Neb, snld the administration's sugar policy was a "terrible mess." He said ijeoplo "Bcnerally" would bo willing lo see sugar prices I creased somewhat to assure more production. Rep. Thomas A. Jenkins, R.. O., chairman of the GOP Congressional Food Study Committee, said the government's present sugar policy was based on n "senseless four" oi a sugar surplus, He believed rationing should be died next year. ^'Unless the program is cluuised," lie said, "we are certain to see less sugar produced in the United States and we, will become more *mi more dependent, on Imports." In n letter to Sen. Carl A. Hutch, P., N. <M., Anderson asserted lirnt some brokers sought to end 'government controls in an effort to corner the world's supply, rvon II it meant boosting prices to 50-ccnls a pound. He did not specifically name Die brokers Involved In the "plot," other than to say they were New Tork loaders of the National Sugar Uro- kcrs Association. •• Anderson's letter was designed ns an answer to claims Hint ix hunds- off government policy would increase suimr supplies on grocers shelves. Tlin secretary said such arguments were "trush," At the same time Anderson held cut some hope lor increased sugar supplies to housewives and Industrial users next year. He noted that the Industry believes household rations can be Increased from 2!j to 35 pounds per person n .vonr after tlic first three months of 1847.

Vets Promised Early Action On Housing WASHINGTON, Dec. 28.—(UP) —National Housing Administrator Raymond Folcy today promised a decision by early nexl week on what steps can be taken to salvage the lagging temporary housing program for veterans. Folcy was to confer this weekend with Dillon Myer, Federal public housing commissioner. Myer ordered work on thousands of emergency dwelling units halted recently when FPHA's money ran out. Meanwhile it appeared that the enthusiasm of housing expediter Frank R. Crcedon for relaxing a strlck limitation on non-residential construction may have been EOincwhat cooled. Sources in thc Office of Temporary conlrols —'which administers the building limits—said it will be several weeks before any change is made in the $33,000,000 average weekly ceiling that has been In ef- fccl since August. Crcedon, who once said the non- honslng limitation was "dangerously strict," ic|x>rtedly has been subjected lo heavy pressure by veterans groups to continue thc ban unchanged, 50 available materials will go Into houses. Indications were that he eventually would order the weekly limit raised to $50,000,000. He is expected lo emphasize, however, that Uie extra dollar volume will be In skeleton construction, with use o materials vital to homes still to be held up.

Tlie Indignant trio described Ihc Impromptu barber as n tall, thin, hatless young man with a "long pair of black shoes." Washington psychiatrists say tlic youth was a possible sex-maniac. "Usually," they said, "these persons are satisfied with some object closely associated with a girl, such as her handkerchief, slipper or a lock of hair. They don't often become violent but they arc always wrong-headed and there is always the chance o[ violence." Tlie first victim was a 12-year- old juntor high school student carelessly."isl;,, her pis-tails " over the back of a trolley seat'; felt a slight tug, but " K1 " ca the time.
